Curious as to what happened when they did not? Did they just not allow you into venue and/or did you have to give them a story, such as, bought bogus ticket in the lot? Not passing any judgment, just curious.

I once got into MSG by going in with friends who had tix and I handed a $20 to the ticket taker. Only time I tried that and it worked. Luck of the draw?

Nothing too dramatic, I was just not let in and the fake ticket confiscated. Actually I guess I exaggerated a bit because I only did this during spring and fall tour 1990, and the only venue it didn't work in was McNichol's Arena in CO late that year. I had real tix for the first two shows and fake for the third. Interestingly my friend got in with those the same tix but I was shut out...the power of being a pretty blond I guess.

Helps to choose your ticket-taker wisely. As in,avoid the old frowning dude with a buzz cut and go to the young dude that looks like he'd rather be anywhere else. That's right,ticket-taker profiling!
Thinking more for the 'pat down' than ticket scammin'. Same idea though.
